This JAMA article has been completely ignored. Gee I wonder why.
This is exactly why I have no patience for people who are quick to say they "caught Covid". It's a self-fulfilling prophechy, and attitudes not illnesses are contagious. In other words, YOU are the contagion if you do this. YOU can make yourself sick by thinking you are sick.
Second excerpt is from 1890's essay on contagion by Mary Baker Eddy
@SmedleyButler Had a quick convo the other day with a random neighbor about this idea - I told him I believed those who watch MSM and think they have C19 mind fuck themselves and get sicker for it. Some kind of placebo-like effect.
@beepye I can't believe the hostility I get when trying to talk about this. People are so fucking attached to the disease paradigm they do not want to hear that maybe getting sick is "your fault" to some extent.
@SmedleyButler I live in liberal Massachusetts where this sort of thinking runs thicker than red clay
I gave-up trying to talk to anyone about this over a year ago,
I found it far less stressful to accept that the KungFlu mentally broke nearly all the people I know (like BP I live in the Peoples' Republic of Mass) and regrettably the overwhelming majority of them ain't a-comin' back anytime soon.
In retrospect, turns out most of them (NPC left cultists) were pretty darn broken to start with
